After three-years without a new album or EP, the Compton, California born reggae singer will release new music.
J Boog, one of the leading reggae singers in the genre today, has been one of the most highly anticipated artists to release new music over the last three-years. The last release from J Boog was his Live Up EP in July of 2013. The five-song EP gave J Boog constant radio rotation since its release featuring songs “Break Us Apart”, “Leaving With Me” and “Audio”.
Now, nearly three-years later, J Boog is prepared to release his latest EP, Rose Petals on March 18, 2016. The release will once again feature five-songs, including collaborations with Stephen Marley, Chaka Demus and Snoop Dogg.
The collaboration with Snoop Dogg or Snoop Lion has been rumored for nearly four-years. In 2012, J Boog stated, “They weren’t rumors at all. We actually did a song together. Yeah, we did.” Now fans will get a chance to hear the collaboration “No Pressure” on the upcoming release of Rose Petals.
Two of the upcoming tracks on Rose Petals, “Good Feeling”, featuring Stephen Marley and “Good Cry”, featuring Chaka Demus have already hit the reggae airwaves and have reached the top spot on the most requested list on numerous Hawaiian based radio stations.
In 2015, it was rumored that J Boog would be releasing a full-length album in 2016, titled Wash House Ting. It is rare to see a band or artist release and EP and full-length album in the same calendar year, but reggae acts follow their own blue print far away from traditional recording artists in the mainstream.
Perhaps Rose Petals will be the appetizer that keeps fans salivating for a new full-length record from J Boog. And, fans in the United States will have an opportunity to hear some of the new tracks live and direct at a concert this spring.
J Boog will begin a month long tour on April 20, 2016 in San Francisco. The tour will include dates in Colorado, Kansas, Minnesota, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Virginia Beach, Myrtle Beach, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, New Orleans, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Las Vegas and three shows in Southern California to conclude the spring tour.
